The third base has basically become the new first base, with the added bonus of many players who can steal an unimportant amount or hit for a higher average. There are (3) no 3Bs that would be considered major fantasy needle-movers in the SBs (with the possible exception of top-order Jose Ramirez), but it is still with many four- or five-grade contributors and a few top One situation is -ear sluggers. A quick glance at this year’s rankings also let you know that solid starters can be found in all drafts.
The top seven or eight 3B-eligible players would potentially go through the first three rounds. On Yahoo, where Manny Machado and Alex Bragman are SS-characters, some of these players could be drafted to play another spot (DJ Lemahieu will slip to around 2B), but somehow, the best 3Bs Will come off the board early. This does not mean that you need to reach one – or 3B in the next tier – but it does mean that you must have multiple draft tactics for the position.
Further in the rankings, you will find more players who will likely be drafted to play other positions. The second base is not particularly strong this year, so players like Max Muncy, Mike Molcakas, Nick Solak, Dylan Moore and others are likely to go further where we ranked them below. Because of that, third base can quickly slim down if you don’t get one of the top ones, again, this is not a cause for panic because some third- or fourth-tier ones can have big seasons if they stay healthy ( Josh Donaldson, Justin Turner, Miguel Sano) or big breakouts (Alec Bohm, Austin Riley, Ke’Brien Hayes).
All of those types of sleepers are worth drafting at some point, and even going deep, you can find some interesting sleepers such as Carter Kiebom or even Mike Brusseau and John Bertie if they were to be regularized. Get playing time. At the very least, the multi-position qualification of these players makes them an assistant bench option in deep leagues.
Finally, the third base is the type of position where you can get a star that actually hits for a higher average (Anthony Rendon, possibly Nolan Arenado if you still trust him away from Coors), a big one. Slugger (Eugerio Suarez, Matt Chapman), or a decent power-speed guy (Cavan Bigigo, Yon Moncada). Draft according to what you want.
We will keep updating the 3B rankings frequently throughout the spring, so check back for the latest player movement. Please note that players are ranked as if they are In college Characters on 3B. Some players, such as Cavan Bigigo and Dylan Moore, may be ranked higher overall as they qualify to other positions.
